Call Angie Killian at 406-249-7617, or your real estate professional. This rare Flathead cherry orchard is nestled right in the very heart of Montana's favorite cherry orchards. The property is graced with a unique and spectacular estate building site on a private and forested knoll overlooking a broad expanse of cherry trees with nearly 180° views of awe inspiring Flathead Lake drawing your eyes west to Wildhorse Island, and Thompson Peak beyond. To the east are the Mission Mountains for breathtaking sunrise scenery. This nearly 5 acre (4.92) parcel is a productive cherry orchard with nearly 400 mature trees, including multiple varieties of sweet cherries, apples, nectarines, walnuts, hazelnuts, plums, raspberries, and more ... The property has abundant water rights, both gravity fed for the orchard and well water for domestic use. A short walk across the road brings you to the gorgeous Yellow Bay State Park with beaches, a boat launch ramp, and a wonderful spot to begin your lake adventures of boating, fishing, kayaking or paddle boarding in the astonishingly clear water of Flathead Lake. The current owner has nearly finished construction of a large (36x36) shop which is half living quarters, and it is completely heated with in-floor radiant heat. It also has clear span trusses, so the interior walls aren't supporting the roof and the interior is quite versatile. There's also a separate garage with a walk-in cooler for your summer harvest, and a long list of orchard equipment being included for your use. The owner is willing and eager to pass along her knowledge to you, or you may choose to lease the orchard care out. There is a possibility of an agricultural tax reduction in this area of multi-million dollar properties. A multitude of wildlife frequent the area, and while the property is nearly fully enclosed with game fence, one cow elk has chosen this bit of paradise to come to each spring to have her calf in recent years. Deer, moose, turkeys, and bears have also been seen on the property. The charming village of Bigfork (pop. 5000+) is 20 minutes away, and is home to world class art galleries, fabulous dining possibilities, quaint shops, and the Bigfork Summer Playhouse, which has been celebrated as one of the Northwest's finest repertory theaters for 50 years. All this is delightfully accompanied by the warmth and hospitality for which Montanans are known. Among other accolades, Bigfork has been voted as "One of the 50 Great Towns of the West" and designated as "One of the 100 Best Small Art Towns of the Nation" which is no surprise given its thirteen world class art galleries. Bigfork has most recently been named as One of the 100 Best Getaways for a Vacation or a Lifetime and is one of nine towns featured on the Great Towns of America website along with Sedona, Estes Park, Ashland and 5 other special towns. Most recently, Bigfork was named in "The 10 Most Beautiful Places To Go For A Run" by Nike. "Quiet, isolated, and peaceful, the trails at Bigfork are among the best in Montana, which itself offers hundreds of opportunities for stunning running paths." An hour north of Bigfork you can revel in the glory and the majesty of Glacier National Park, known as the Crown of the Continent, and even closer you'll find the Glacier Park International Airport and all of the shopping and medical facilities of Kalispell. Two excellent ski resorts are within an hour's drive, and all of the incredible abundance of other outdoor recreation is also nearby. With a premier building site offering astonishing views in all directions, situated above a productive and extremely well managed orchard, this property offers a rare and exciting chance to live in and enjoy the banana belt of Montana. This area is known for its mild winters that are especially conducive to growing cherries and other fruit. Is it time for you to follow your dreams?
